While at Hopkins Dr. Dorin served as an officer in the United States Naval Reserve, where he attained the rank of Lieutenant Commander. He joined the Navy in July of 1990, and voluntarily re-affiliated in 2010 so that he could help educate a new generation of military physicians.

Like his father (LT, USNret., Korean War), he is proud to serve our country as a member of the armed forces.
